    Corduroy Squares Patchwork #4

    This is the fourth quilt I have made using corduroy squares from my mother's old skirts, remnants from cord jeans I used to make for myself and odds and ends of thrift store corduroys. The quilt birthday gift for my Grandson. The squares are cut at 5 1/2" and sewn with a 3/8" seam allowance. I press the seams flat and do a herringbone stitch down the seams. The backing is a flannel sheet.

    It looks great.

    Very nice!
    I did a somewhat similar corduroy quilt for a friend who requested corduroy on both sides. Talk about a heavy quilt! But she loves it - she named it Blankelroy (corduroy blanket) - said it was perfect for camping.

    For those of you who might make a quilt using corduroy here are some hints. Corduroy does stretch. So I alternated the wales vertically and horizontally. Because corduroy has a definite texture, smooth or rough as you move your fingers along the wales, I tried to make sure that I reversed the blocks through out the quilt. The texture picks up the light differently and give a little more color variation. Don't worry too much about the corners all meeting exactly cuz it won't happen. The herringbone stitching hides a lot. Quilt Police are not allowed!
